Of Orla Kiely...so I changed these...
I've made 4 pillows so far from Orla Kiely dishtowels I finally found at Target. (whoever hid them behind the ugly black towels...shame!) I have leftovers too...I'm sure you'll see these pop up somewhere else. Kind of changes the whole look of the room, don't you think?
I'm a fan of Lisa and Sarah too. You might know them as A Spoonful of Sugar, the mother and daughter team. They were my Time for Tea swap partners. Honestly, it was like they knew me for years. The towel and apron are perfect for me, for my kitchen. I wish you could see that apron a bit better...it's spectacular...perfectly made and so practical and beautiful too.
Look at all my fabulous goodies. Look closely, yes, that says 'tub tea.' I love a bath and Sarah had the idea to make these lavender filled tea bags for my bath. Let me tell you that is one creative girl! And I will say they are a hit! See my name....being a girl who gets her name spelled incorrectly ALL the time, it means so much that they made me an ATC with MY name! I'm using it on my studio door so everyone who enters knows it's my room. Lisa made me a gorgeous tea wallet so I can have my tea wherever I go. It's traveling with me this week. Little cute tea cup buttons...I have to think of a special use for those. A keychain that goes with me every trip. Maybe I won't lose my keys any more. Probably not. And lastly, lots of tea...all sorts of new flavors to try. I'm thrilled. In my eyes, a perfect match. I'm a fan. If you go for a visit, you will be too.
This was a fabulous swap, organized and managed by Stephanie of Loft Creations. Stephanie invited us and did such a great job (at least for me) pairing up the partners. From what I've seen on other blogs this was swapnificent! Great job Steph! Look what Stephanie sent to all of us...our own personal tea house. It has a little pocket on the other side to hold a tea bag. Thanks Stephanie...you know I'm a fan!
Last but definitely not least I'm a fan of Susan of Chickenfoot. Susan made this adorable pin cushion for me after I placed in her 'most embarrassing story' contest on her blog. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say the major players were me, a skunk, my dog and a red faced hunter. Some nudity was involved. Thanks Susan. As you can see it is well used.
